About the Health Literacy Discussion List

Welcome to the LINCS Health Literacy Discussion List moderated by Julie McKinney.

The purpose of this list is to provide an on-going professional development forum where literacy practitioners, healthcare providers, health educators, researchers, policymakers, and others can discuss health literacy needs, goals and strategies. These include:

  • Addressing literacy and communication issues in health education programs and in healthcare settings;
  • Integrating health literacy into adult basic education programs;
  • Collaborating between the fields of adult literacy, health care and other related agencies; and,
  • Creating appropriate, accessible and actionable education materials and trainings

List members form an online community dedicated to moving the field of Health literacy forward, with the ultimate goal of improving both health literacy and health outcomes for everyone.
